second amendment rights and the second amendment rights of our law-abiding law-ag citizens. we have seen the newtown parents here in washington bravely telling their stories. they deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of aurora deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of more than 30 people who die every single day at the hands of gun violence deserve more from this body. my friends, it is simply time to act. today is the day for this body to show the american people that their voices matter. that when 90% of americans demand us to expand background checks, that we can deliver. we should be able to agree today that we no longer need military-style weapons and ammunition clips on our streets. and we should be able to agree today that it's time to crack down on the illegal handguns being trafficked in our streets into the hands of criminals. four years ago, i met the parents of naisha pryor yard. naisha was a beautiful 17-year-old honor student killed in the prime of her life by an illegal handgun when she was just spending t
and use tax laws and for other purposes. mr. reid: mr. president, i would object to any further proceedings in regard to this bill. the presiding officer: objection having been heard, the bill will be placed on the calendar. mr. reid: mr. president, today this august body will honor the memory of 20 first-grade children, little babies who were gunned down, most of them shot multiple times. we will also honor the teachers and administrators who were killed that day in newtown, connecticut. but we're also going to honor with this legislation tens of thousands of others who were killed by guns each year here in america. we're going to do that by voting on a number of measures to strengthen the laws to prevent gun violence in this nation. mr. president, the families of innocents killed in newtown, aurora, in carson city, blacksburg, in oak creek and columbine really deserve these votes. where do i stand on these democratic proposals? this afternoon the senate will vote on a compromised background check proposal crafted by senators manchin, toomey, kirk and schumer, all experienced l
the person is. there is no positive i.d. we expect more details at a briefing from law enforcement in an hour and will bring that live. we've learned the identity of the third victim killed in the attack, lindsay liu. the school confirmed her identity earlier this afternoon. 8-year-old martin richard and 29-year-old krystle campbell were also killed in the horrible bombings. 178 people were injured and at least 100 have been released from area hospitals. i'm joined by john king and cnn analyst. juliet, start with you. you are a former homeland security official. what are you hearing on the latest of the developments especially when it comes to this individual who was spotted on videotape? >> essentially what you said, you know, that the idea they would have a name that soon seemed way too quick for someone in custody unless he was well known to law enforcement already or was under surveillance. right now this is exactly how you would expect an investigation to unfold. there will now be -- trying to figure out what his name is but, jake, the key is what are they going to say at 5:00? we should
right now has been a nightmare for federal and local law enforcement. the leaks that came out today should be an embarrassment. i'm certain that they are. there may be a couple of meetings going on with the chief of police in boston whose department tweeted out information about an arrest today which was completely erroneous. this has been embarrassing for law enforcement at the wrong time. >> so it wasn't the a.p., it was the tweet and the a.p. picked up the tweet? >> yes, the police department apparently tweeted out some information about an arrest. >> bob, talk to me about that and the fact that they still have made considerable progress, have they not, since the terror attack occurred. a lot of people didn't think that they would have a person of interest either in custody or even an image of that person by this point. >> well, since 9/11, the department of homeland security and law enforcement at large has really taken some really tremendous strides and using technology to be able to assist law enforcement, the cameras, surveillance cameras, all those things become part of this
, take a law enforcement official briefed on this investigation has said that a suspect was identified from cameras here on boylston street on the 700 block at the lore don taylor store. surveillance cameras from lore don taylor. -- lore don taylor. -- lord&taylor. this is a huge development in this case. this is a tragedy that's impacted people here in boston and all the way to the bay area. to clarify, i called the boston police department about 20 minutes ago and was told that there has not been an arrest, but then that police department also referred me to the boston f.b.i. when i spoke to them also about 20 minutes ago, they said they could neither confirm that there had been an arrest but they also would not deny that there had been one. they told me they would brief the media later today. still folks here paying their respects are cautiously optimistic. >> i think it would put a lot of people's minds at ease that the person has been caught. i think it's an unsettling feeling when you know someone is still out there. >> reporter: we are expecting an update from the f.b.i. at 5:00
a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is. we're certainly digging on that at this point. you can see in the lower corner of the screen, we're waiting the white house screening. it was scheduled for 11:45 a.m. it's not that unusual for it to run a little later than what it is now. so we do know of course the white house press secretary jay carney will be receiving a lot of questions about these developments. but at this point it's also very much an issue, wo
? >> we're told fran townsend has a federal source, i have a boston law enforcement source saying an arrest has been made. that is a dramatic breakthrough. waiting for more information. i was told earlier this morning an operation was under way after they had clearly identified a suspect. the breakthrough came, remember, just last night, we were talking about how much progress they made in the how and exactly when. but they hadn't gotten to the who. i'm told based on a video camera at lord & taylor department store a few blocks from here, based on a video camera from that store fixed on the location from the second bombing, across the street from the second bombing, they got what they were looking for. video analysis showing a male showing up and placing the black bag with the explosive device in it, and because of the video enhancement technology, mostly dprept sto from the department store, they clearly identified a suspect, a single suspect and an arrest has been made. a briefing scheduled for later this evening, obviously. >> so let's reset chronologically. do we know what poi
of a federal law intended to protect native american families. marcia coyle recaps today's arguments. >> ifill: and a new bipartisan report finds that after 9/11, the u.s. "engaged in the practice of torture" with detainees. we talk with two of the authors. >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. >> and by the bill and melinda gates foundation. dedicated to the idea that all people deserve the chance to live a healthy, productive life. >> and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... >> this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> ifill: the investigation of the boston marathon bombings ramped up today, as police and federal agents pored over the crime scene. three people are dead, including an eight-year-old boy, and more than 170 others were injured. a handful of those remain in critical condition at various boston hospi
saw, david, that law enforcement is asking the public for help in the form of videos, photos, anything. do you have any sense of what kind of response they're getting? >> they're getting a great response. there are hundreds and thousands of pictures and videos that were taken. you know, the social media since 9/11 has expanded. everybody has phones and cameras now and so this is going to taken a enormous amount of work if they're trying to go through these. this could be very complicated. some people suggest it indicates that they don't have a lot of leads otherwise. but certainly that's one thing that they're looking for. >> brown: speaking of 9/11, i wonder just tell -- give us a sense of the mood there today and maybe you can compare it to what happened after 9/11. >> absolutely. i remember 9/12 and 9/12 was a day much like today: brilliant sky, warm. in 2001 on 9/11 boston was a crime scene that had no evidence, there were no victims here and so it had been robbed in that sense. today just the opposite. a terrible number of victims and a lot of devastation at that scene. >> brown:
's the new york times. in the new "new york times, a senior law-enforcement officials said they were looking the connection between pressure cookers, which is how the bombs were used, and al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. some reporting from the papers this morning. getting your reaction, day two of your reaction to the bombings in boston. we begin with charles, an independent caller. aller: i'm just calling about fox reporter in boston going around asking people about the situation that happened and what should they do to the people. and he tried to switch over like it was the president's fault, asking do you think the president has done enough? it is the same stuff with them. these people are grieving a loss and they are trying to say it's the president's fault. i don't understand fox news. are a bunch of haters. we are trying to bring the country together. i just don't get them. they gave busgh a pass, running this country into the ground. it is a shame how they act all the time. --t: on our facebook page facebook.com/c-span. william, republican caller from tennessee. caller: good mornin
states today. roughly half the people that buy them are current or former members of the military or law enforcement. they buy them for legitimate purposes-- primarily for target shooting and increasingly to go hunting. members of the united states senate and congress own those firearms. paul ryan, for example, owns one of those and goes hunting with them. >> ifill: that one was a forgone concliewrkz as were the magazine clips, but the background checks not so much. >> our concern with the universal background checks is we think the problem we see is you have to fix the nix system. the first thing you need to do is fix the nix system which is why our industry is funding an initiate toif work at the grass-roots level to work with the states falling down on the jobs and not getting the background checks-- getting the information into the background check system. the system is only as good as the information that's in it, and background checks that are incompleted and accurate don't help anybody. having more of those background checks that are incomplete also doesn't help anybody. >> ifill:
, and it does appear according to nbc news sources in law enforcement, that there is some video of somebody placing a black bag or a dark bag at the site near the site of the explosions. we should caution that there may have been a lot of people placing bags on the ground, as they come to watch runners pass the finish line. that may not have been the bomb at all. but if you are an investigator trying to get to the bottom of this, that's someone opportunity to talk to. and what law enforcement sources are telling us is that there are a lot of people now that they want to talk to based on all of this evidence. but with everybody, world media here, law enforcement agencies from around the country, really lacking at this, there are a lot of -- there's a lot of information that's flying around and a lot o opportunipportuniti to conclusions. that appears to be what happened. nonetheless, they've made some tremendous strides. we can see that based on what we're looking at on the ground since the attacks on monday afternoon. guys? >> a great rundown, scott, of what we know and don't know at this po
suspects either being identified or being in custody is because these photos began circulating among law enforcement and there was confusion about whether or not there had been arrest but about the fact that there have been suspects or persons of interest who have been identified or at least isolated by law enforcement. >> bill: so you have seen the photos, rick, and based on the imknowledges you saw, how clear are the faces on these photos? >> they are pretty clear. there are multiple angles and you can definitely see their faces. and i hope and i believe that law enforcement using those photos can positively identify the men and whether or not they're the men who are actually responsible remains to be seen. >> quickly, rick, we have also learned earlier tod that investigators found more possible parts from the bomb. what's different today than from last night on that? >> well, you know, we know that these crime scene technicians have been on scene on boilston street for days now, collecting evidence, including apparently the lid from a pressure cooker that blew up on to one of the roof
, a bill to restore states' sovereign rights to enforce state and local sales and use tax laws, and for other purposes. mr. reid: i ask for a second reading and object to my own request. the presiding officer: objection having been heard, the bill will be read for a second time on the next legislative day. mr. reid: i ask unanimous consent the senate recess subject to the call of the chair. the presiding officer: without objection, the senate stands in recess subject to the call of the chair. >>> one day after the boston bombings a bipartisan watch group said the government used torture and illegal interrogation methods after the september 11 attacks in 2001. that report is next on c-span2. >>> she came into the white house, she was a 47-year-old lady that he did politics. she was deeply depressed at the death of her son and especially under the terrible circumstances in which she died. she didn't have many friends unfortunately, but she did have a wonderful family there always seems to be somebody there and i don't think he did very much but she was a very intellectual woman,
of massachusetts. >> there's an enormous presence of federal, state and also local law enforment agencies working very much hand hand and pulling in the same direction. that's important. i think as chief executive my job is to make sure they have the resources they need and to step back and give them the space they need to do what they must do. and we as citizens, i think have to be patient with that the other thing on the comforter side is to assure people of that about which i am confident which is that we will heal. we will be strong and we will be a sustaining community even through arage like this one. >> rose: we kin this evening with mike barnicle of msnbc's morning joe kevin cullen of "boston globe" and john miller of cbs. >> if they think they will get us they don't know much. we care in boston about politics, sports and revenge. the revenge is the laughter of our children. these guys don't knowwhat ty did. every cop i talked to today, just hard looks and people are ready. and i have no doubt they'll identify who did this. boston is a tough town. it's the kind of town where people take
with governor of massachusetts, deval patrick. we have talked to law enforcement officials and people from the medical profession and good citizens of boston and massachusetts. i would like to look at this through unique eyes of you, as the chief executive officer of massachusetts, tell me what you saw and what you felt and where you are and where you have to go with the people of massachusetts in absorbing what has happened and where they go from here. >> well, charlie, i was -- i was at the finish line opposite the blast until an hour, an hour and a half before the first two of the blasts. and like so many people who had been there in the course of day and were at the time of blast, of course, one thing that goes through your mind is there but for the grace of god. i think as a community we're rattled and in some cases shattered. i think everyone's sense of security is certainly shaken. but i also know us, and i know that we're made of pretty resilient stuff. and that we are turning to each other rather that on each other and that we will heal. that will take some time. >> rose: with res
. and law enforcement officials. many of these people have contacts in the media. we don't know who is saying what to whom. what we do know is that apparently these reports that an arrest had been made are not correct. >> i thought the point that steve emmerson made was well taken. there are multiple agencies working this story. who knows in which silo the information may have been held. it may account for the misunderstanding that we've been watching. >> i want to say, i spoke with one of my sources today who could not confirm an arrest had been made, but did confirm some of the images they've been looking at. they've thank is key 'cause they've been asking the public and the press to share images and video of the scene because on those images, undoubtably the bomber can be seen. we have heard there may be surveillance camera foot edge and local television news footage of the bomber in the crowd that may have been verified by linking up the two source. they're continuing to ask for photographs. they were at the airport at logan stopping people getting on planes and asking if they h
these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
provided by the commentators, pundits and law professors who made it seem acceptable in the minds of the public in the wake of 9/11. that is why the after math of an event like boston, we have a duty to fight the darkest impulses in ourselves, in our fellow country men and women, to make clear to our leader that is we desire security and justice and the application of the rule of law. that there is no reason that our remarkably capable law enforcement officials and courts can't handle apprehending, trying and convicting the perpetrators of this slaughter and it is why i was so angered and disappointed when i saw david weigel report that susan collins said this today. what do we do once we capture the individual? how is he treated, if he's an american, then the constitutional protection pertain. if he is a foreign national, he should be held by a military tribunal and not read his mir randa rights. yes, susan collins, a voice of reason and bipartisan reason. telling reporters that if the person apprehended has beens to be a foreign national -- what a disgrace and what an insult to
're selling the rule of law, individual responsibility and equal opportunity. i don't see that republicans can gain electorate by sacrificing the rule of law in order to start a conversation when that topic is on the last of six among hispanic voters in the country today. >> bill: it may be last but the perception is the democratic pear the is going to give them stuff and going to be more lenient on the border. therefore, you have to win hearts and minds. i would wo would always say, if i was a poor mexican, i would come to america and send money back. i think it's our fault and mexico, of course, and exploiting people in for years. ronald reagan promised things would change. that a series of republican and democratic presidents didn't do anything. you can blame the illegal alien but in that spirit you might want to compromise? >> ronald reagan let me down two tiles, 1986 when he signed the amnesty act, he was honest enough to call it that. he could not follow on his word to enforce the law. each succeeding administration has enforced it let's and less. now, the president has lawlessly announc
the washington d.c. newsroom, average americans are seemingly backing off the push for tougher laws, kyla? >> reporter: they are weakening across the country and here is the latest poll. 49% of americans now support stricter gun laws which is down 58% in january. this afternoon the senate is voting on at least 9 different pieces of legislation and they will expand to online gun sales and shows. it needs 60 votes to pass and based on a number of senators speaking out it looks like they could fall short. there are others up for a vote including an assault weapons ban led by dianne finestein. >> we hope to set up a series of votes both sides would like to initially offer on this legislation. >> the final legislation will -- >> reporter: the final legislation will not be hammered out and i will have what happens in these next votes when i see you next kyla campbell ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> according to the washington post, facebook lobbyists worked behind the scenes on capitol hill to get a provision in the new bill that would be helpful to new technical companies. they are helping to
of all of this, for their part is reporting a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation says a suspect has been taken into custody in the boston bombings. so we are just not comfortable based on our sources at this hour reporting that. so pete williams is correct in saying that this is all over the map right now. the one thing that appears to be clear is that either video or still pictures or a combination of both have led law enforcement officials to, at least, zero in on someone. this just in to us. investigators obtained video of a person placing a black bag down near the scene of the blast. one of the sources confirm the foot offage came from the lord and taylor surveillance camera. this is information we've already reported. video or stills that will give them imagery and give them at least the first road to go down when going down through the streets of boston and looking for who to pick up. various media accounts right now as to whether or not someone is in custody. someone is fully under arrest. we will leave the air now and we will hop back on the air if we learn any

-qaeda. any indication from your law enforcement sources that they have any suspicions at this point? >> what i hear at this point in time is they can't rule anything out. it's way too early in the game. they have to look at this device, they have to look at how it is built, they have to look at how devices over in the middle east were built and have been utilized. and pressure cooker bombs have been used in the middle east,@% especially pakistan. they know that. but they also, as i said, it's a very common bomb, if you will. so they have to look at everything. as one person said to me, what was the message of the bomber? what were they trying to say? it's very hard to rule out for anybody at this point in time, the date. it was tax day, it was four or five days before the anniversary of waco. it was patriots day in boston and this was a celebration that was honoring the newtown victims. there's a lot of american, if you will, symbolism around all the elements of the bombing that all the investigators are looking at right now. they start with the forensics, they start with the components and
or three days while testing continues and law enforcement mess investigates and briefed senators were reminded to warn employees to be very vigilant in handling and processing all mail that comes to offices in the capitol and district offices in their home state. the very first spot for mail is at an offsite facility. that began in 2001 after a couple of senators received letters laced with anthrax. how much of a threat is ricin? ricin is toxic and lethal, but only when injected which is why the department of homeland security considers it category "b," or a lower threat agent as opposed to anthrax, which is much more deadly. >> dana bash reporting. senator wicker has additional security. >>> sports helping boston return to some sense of normalcy and fans in other cities showing their support. let's just say. the red sox in cleveland last night, playing for the first time since the marathon bombings, a moment of silence for victims before the game. this jersey hung in the red sox dugout. boston strong with the city's 617 area code. even the sox' hated rivals had their backs last night
to the bombing in boston. meanwhile, law enforcement officials in massachusetts are combing through more than 2,000 tips, looking through photos like this one, shall shows a bag sitting by a mailbox before the explosion. it is unclear at this point whether or not the bag has any relevance, but appears to be near the center of the explosion. president obama will be in boston tomorrow to attend a memorial service for the victims. for the loved once of those killed and maimed in the explosion, there is only confusion and many unanswered questions. joining me today here in new york city, nbc news capitol hill correspondent luke russert, and misterrorism expert michael leiter, and bob herbert, a distinguished senior fellow at dimos. >>> let's go to kristin welker for more. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. here's what we know at this hour. this letter was received yesterday at an off-site mail facility. i want to emphasize that. it did not get close to the white house. it's typical for letters sent to this facility to undergo a screening. during that process, it was discovered that a letter address
this apparently was going. earlier on your broadcast this evening, i was chastised a bit in the law enforcement community and were progressing as we moved along, but you have to keep in mind, as their looking for these clues, any single one of those clues could lead them immediately to a suspect. a thumbprint on the bomb that they're recreating down in quantico, any tip, any certain surveillance shot or even a photograph that somebody who was at the scene may have taken of their loved ones as they were snapping a picture near the finish line and now notice there is a guy in the background perhaps putting a black bag somewhere. that could be just the one tip that would solve this case. they have extensive manpower on it. there is no way they're getting frustrated this early in the game, but i will tell you, they are in a real urgent hunt to find this person and solve this crime. >> certainly the first 24 or 48 hours, so crucial in that. thanks to drew. let's talk about what authorities can learn from this new evidence. i want to bring in the former fbi assistant director tom fuentes, and don bar
it into law. that undertaking and many others, john berry made a real difference of the more than 62,000 federal workers and everyone else who called my district home. just as we look to our federal workers to watch out for us, our federal workers look to john to watch out for them, to make sure they have a safe work environment, that their paychecks will arrive on time and the benefits they earn are the ones they receive. under president clinton, john served as deputy assistant secretary and acting assistant secretary for law enforcement at the treasury department. overseeing the united states secret service and the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms. and he later moved to the interior department where he was assistant secretary for policy, management and budget, essentially the manager of the department of interior. before coming to the office of personnel management, john spent nearly a decade working on conservation as director of the fish and wildlife foundation, and then arguably the job he perhaps has enjoyed most, he became director of the national zoo. at the national z
to more gun buyers. the plans is an effort by gun control supporters to tighten firearms laws in the wake of the newtown school massacre. the measure would also tighten laws against gun trafficking. and boost school safety aid. >> u-s senator roger wicker is targeted with a letter that tested positive with a potentially deadly poison. an envelope. tested positive for ricin. was addressed to the miss intercepted at an off- site screening center on capitol hill senator wicker and his staff is okay. he has been given a protective detail. ricin is a highly toxic substance. an amount the size of the head of a pin -- can kill an adult. >> more now on the boston marathon bombings. three people were killed. and nearly 200 were injured in the attack. doctors treating the victims say, they are growing increasingly optimistic that all of the injuried will survive. one of the three people killed has been identified as a chinese national and grad student at boston university. the other two are a 29 year old woman. and an eight year old boy. heart=rending images of pain and suffering from boston globe
